DISCUSSION | Marking International Stuttering Awareness Day

October 22 was designated International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD) in 1998. Stuttering is a communication disorder in which repetitions – or abnormal stoppages of sounds and syllables – break the flow of speech. International Stuttering Awareness Day shines a helpful spotlight on stutterers and educates the public about the causes. The day is intended to raise public awareness of the millions of people – one percent of the world’s population who have the speech disorder of stuttering. We talk about the importance of today with Itumeleng Modibedi, the founder of I stutter through an education campaign, and also Dr. Anniah Mupawose Senior Lecturer, she is also a Speech-Language Pathologist from Wits University.
